Twitter co-founder returns

Twitter co-founder returns
One of Twitter's four co-founders Biz Stone is returning to the social media company after a 6-year absence.

He announced Tuesday

San Francisco-based Twitter was founded in 2006 and has 313 million active users, according to its website.

Stone had worked on other projects, including founding Jelly, "a human-powered search and discovery engine," which was acquired by Pinterest in March.

"My top focus will be to guide the company culture, that energy, that feeling," Stone wrote in a Medium post.

"It's important that everyone understands the whole story of Twitter and each of our roles in that story."

Stone said he was going to take a "really sweet gig" elsewhere but Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey persuaded him to come back after a company town hall event.

"When I stood next to Jack addressing the crowd of employees, I felt the energy, and I was overcome with emotion," Stone wrote in his post. "I realized in that moment that Twitter was the most important work of my life."

Dorsey posted that he was "excited to have Biz's energy and heart back at Twitter" in a tweet Tuesday. Dorsey is also running Square, a financial services and merchant services aggregator and mobile payment company

Last month, Ev Williams, another Twitter co-founder, announced plans to sell as much as 30 percent of his stake in the company to fund other investments, but remains a member of its board.
